Looking for a fun space to spend an afternoon, as a family, now that the weather is finally warming? The Museum District near downtown Houston is a wonderful spot to learn and play. In addition to several museums and the Houston Zoo, there is also Hermann Park, a popular attraction that features pedal boats, a train, the Pinewood Café and much more. The Children’s Museum is just one of the nearby draws, too. Other area favorites include the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Japanese Garden, Centennial Garden and much more.
